We were particularly impressed with the straight forward approach Jan and U.H.M Basements Ltd adopted. The process was explained clearly and many concerns were ironed out in the very early stages. From start to finish the construction and fit out teams were punctual, courteous and hard working.

The Challenges

A full internal refurbishment of the property with a basement extension in Kensal Rise, having a gross internal area of the new basement of 92 square meters.The owner wanted to refurbish the entire interior of the house and convert the existing cellar to a contemporary habitable space under and beyond the footprint of the house into the rear garden.

This solution gives enough space for a large open living room with a kitchen, dining area and a utility room.The basement level has been lowered by 600 mm to increase the height throughout the entire floor area.A full fit out with new stud partitioning, insulation, plasterboarding, doors and windows, staircase, wooden flooring and skirting boards was followed by the finishing decoration including tiling to bathroom floor and walls.
